pleased to yield to my good friend from the mayor of his city, the gentleman from new jersey, mr. pascrell, two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new jersey, mr. pascrell, is recognized for two minutes. mr. pascrell: mr. speaker, we need a balanced approach to reducing our deficit. which makes responsible cuts while also raising revenue. this bill is not the way to do it. i have a great respect for the gentleman's intellect. but this is one of the dumbest bills i have ever seen come to this floor. let's take a look at it, mr. speaker. i rise in strong opposition to this rule and the underlying bill. as part of the fiscal cliff deal , we promise federal employees that they would see their first pay raise in over two years on march 27. this is a modest pay. half a percent. when you save $10 million talking about $1 billion a year. now a little more than a month before the increase takes effect, the bill before us today would break that promise. do you think, america, that this is going to solve the fiscal problems that the congress and presidents created? my home state of
increase in spending. and it's happening every day in cities and counties and states throughout america. they're dealing with far worse reductions than that. and there was no tax increase agreed to at all. not one penny of tax increases. and those reductions in spending are in law. they're in the new baseline that we're now operating on. and to give back that spending without finding reductions in spending elsewhere would be to increase spending above that agreed to in the budget control act. and that is what the democratic outline that we've seen would do. it increases spending. it increases taxes and say don't worry about the increased spending. we've taken care of it. we've raised taxes. so that's the deal. so they raise taxes to pay for the increase. that is in clear violation of the terms of the agreement and the moral agreement we had with the american people. it's in violation of what was told to the american people a little over 18 months ago. and to that extent it's not acceptable. i urge my colleagues not to proceed with this approach. let's find ways to spread out so that mor
